    HGVC pet friendly?

    I don’t know of any in the HGVC system either.

    Likelihood of 3 bedroom at Valdoro at 9 months out for early April (next year)?

    We go to valdoro about 3-4 times a year both winter and summer mouths. We love the resort and the town of Breckenridge. In the winter we ski and in the summer we hike and bike. As you probably know, Breckenridge is at 9600 ft with the mountains higher than that. We haven’t had any issues...

    Likelihood of 3 bedroom at Valdoro at 9 months out for early April (next year)?

    Valdoro in early April is still ski season. I know that I usually book this time of year because it is spring break at schools in our area. I am however able to book because I own a ski week there. I would say that you have a possibility because April is actually late in the ski season...

    2020 Club Rules and Club Fee Schedule posted

    Well, free with the increased club dues for bHC with AI. But yes, worth it.

    Amex Hilton Aspire

    It was a couple of months ago (within the last 3 months). I know, I read the same thing. I will try it again this year just to check. But I got 1 $100 and 2 $50 gift cards.

    Amex Hilton Aspire

    I know that one TUG member told me that he have 5 of them. I am just trying to understand one right now. I used it for SW gift cards and I received the credit back. It took over a month to show up and I didn’t realize at first what it was. If something on the bill is a credit, I usually...

    Amex Hilton Aspire

    Where is this list? Yes, I honestly don’t know what took me so long to get this card. I think that it must have been the $450 fee and not figuring out that it pays $500 back each year. Thanks to HGV TUG members in providing details on how this card saves you money.

    Cancel my contract - Help with address needed!

    Welcome to TUG. We are here to help and give you advice. Both @RX8 and @Grammarhero have provided advice on rescinding. I would suggest that you take care of that item first before doing anything else. After that is complete, then you can research if a TS is right for you. If you...

    VIP package scheduled for Spring, should I purchase as LLC to avoid ROFR?

    Welcome to TUG. Glad that you found us before making a purchase. I agree with the previous posters. Which resort/room size/season are you considering in Orlando.

    HGVC versus by Hilton Club branding

    Yes. I would expect HGVC Maui to a have high point requirement. To my knowledge, HGVC hasn’t revealed them yet.

    HGV Third Quarter 2019 Results

    I think that is still way to early to predict what will happen at this time. Secondly, if Apollo does purchase HGVC and combines it into Diamond, Diamond doesn’t have a good reputation in the TS industry.

    Welcome to TUG and congratulations on finding us in time. Don’t worry about getting suckered into the salesperson’s presentation. They are very good at that “setting the hook”.

    Just saw a report that Apollo Global Management is the lead bidder to acquire the company and plans to merge HGV with Diamond Resorts - refer to link here. @CalGalTraveler also started a very interesting thread in the Diamond Resorts forum on How Happy are you with Diamond Ownership

    No, this is the normal HGVC club season booking window for most HGVC resorts.

    HGV. How can I stop paying Annual Maintenance Fees?

    If I were doing this, then this is what I would do because I am familiar with it. I haven't used Redweek.

    HGV. How can I stop paying Annual Maintenance Fees?

    I understand your position and I think that it is a good one. Some of the resorts I have purchased to go to every year, usually booking my home week. After that base, I then purchased others just for the points with low MFs to use elsewhere. Obviously, I have a risk if the HGVC rules change...

    Oahu 3 bedroom

    I would say "dreaming" because weeks 51 & 52 are event weeks to all of HI except for Bay Club and Ocean Tower. An owner of that week must, therefore, cancel their week and then you see it before anyone else. But, others might be able to get a much better opinion than I because I really don't...

    HGV. How can I stop paying Annual Maintenance Fees?

    One could actually purchase resale at some affiliates for much cheaper (@Anthony Schmid quoted less than $40K) gaining HGVC elite status - refer to thread

    Why is there no Vacation Point Exchange for HGVC?

    I certainly would like to have this option or at least better defined than what we currently have (which if more like ad hoc). But I am agreement with @Seagila, I think that if we forced the issue with a rule change, then either it won't be allowed or HGVC will charge a fee. I would...

    HGV. How can I stop paying Annual Maintenance Fees?

    It sounds to me that they don't really sell the TS, just list it. They let other independent licensed brokers actually sell the TS.

    How hard is it to book Orlando in Gold season

    Agree with @Talent312, if you aren't planning to use your Home Week booking (which it isn't necessary at Orlando), it may be better to buy where MFs (maintenance fees) are lower.
